    The Art of Heaving To

    Lin & Larry Pardey have turned the art of heaving to into a science. The system they have developed has been tested and found superior by the Pardeys and others finding themselves heaving-to for survival in extreme conditions. Lessons well learned. I can't wait to get out in some stormy to practice with my vessel.
